Bio/CV

About/Biography

I am a Swiss-English photographer based in Luzern, Switzerland. 

I explore photography as a way to visually represent the hidden feelings and emotions associated with life events, especially those that affect women. 

In my conceptual work, I stage images using my own person as the posed subject. I then employ double exposure techniques or add colour as metaphors for the inner conflict and the hidden self and as ways of layering or challenging meaning. 

By inviting the viewer to explore these often unspoken issues, I aim to foster a better awareness and open discussion.

Although initially self-taught, I am currently studying for an Honours Degree in Photography with the Open College of the Arts in the UK. My work has been exhibited in solo and group exhibitions.
